Oregon Health Authority Reports No New COVID-19 Deaths, 308 More Cases | Local News
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The Oregon Health Authority reported no new COVID-19-related deaths on Friday. That keeps the state’s total at 2,726. The OHA also reported 308 new cases of the virus, bringing that total to 204,587.
The OHA has relied on a daily data update from the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) to report the number of people who need to receive a COVID-19 vaccination to meet the goal of the Oregon to vaccinate 70% of people 18 and over. The CDC has an issue with the data feed that contributes to its COVID data tracking dashboard, which Oregon uses to track the state’s progress and estimates that about two days of data is not showing up on the CDC COVID Data Tracking Dashboard. The CDC is working to resolve the issue and plans to resolve it by June 15.
Oregon has now administered a total of 2,352,742 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,662,657 first and second doses of Moderna, and 154,388 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Friday, 2,007,367 people had completed a series of COVID-19 vaccines. There are 2,310,053 people who have received at least one dose. The number of adults in Oregon who need immunization to reach the 70% threshold is 87,702.
The number of hospital patients with COVID-19 in Oregon is 169, four fewer than the day before. There are 40 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, one less than Thursday.
